A servant leadership mindset and approach is critical to empowering Agile teams to produce great results. That is why this ICAgile-accredited course looks in-depth at the fundamental Agile concepts of adaptive planning, customer collaboration and value-driven delivery — some core distinctions between an Agile project leadership role and a traditional project manager. You will practice these concepts as they apply to Agile project management processes, including metrics, reporting and contract management. The primary audience is traditional project managers transitioning to Agile environments or Agile team members interested in servant leadership.
